Author: Dillon Mendes

When Dillon was in high school, he consistently followed the status quo. Once he was able to step outside of his box and just be himself, his life changed rapidly. At the young age of 17, he co-founded the social enterprise PickWaste. The venture had a huge impact on the environment and was featured all over national news. He was featured on one of the Top 100 podcasts in the world – Humans 2.0 and has worked with brands such as A&W. He is now an Analyst at Deloitte Canada, an alumni of the Top 35 Under 35 Global Changemakers, as well as a TEDx and youth speaker. Dillon has shared his message with thousands of students across Canada and has recently signed with Canada’s largest youth speakers bureau – CYSB in an attempt to spread his message even further.
